JM’s Budget Colloquy comprises a series of Posts which ran during the summer, 2015. The Colloquy traces the origins of the Province’s current fiscal crisis and offers suggestions as to how we might address a situation threatening our society’s economic viability.
Using a decade of Budget data, readers are treated to an explanation of the exigencies of our financial woes through careful explanation, graphs, and exhibits. The “numbers” are digested in a way intended to assist the lay person to comprehend what is often an obscure and arcane subject.
The seven "summer" Posts have been combined with JM’s two most recent; giving both preface and postscript to this extraordinary work. The title “A Decade of Squandered Opportunity” serves as a warning, as much as conclusion.
